  1. I never understood what 14U meant

    • Patrick says:

      Through the city, Route 14 was moved to a freeway alignment in 1971; however, the process to decommission the old alignment of Route 14 is not complete. As a result, this portion is signed California State Route 14U, the U signifying “un-relinquished”.[4] Formal specifications for Route 14U are not published on Caltrans logs, but the route’s existence is acknowledged in Caltrans’ bridge inventory logs.[5] According to the City of Santa Clarita, Caltrans maintains Sierra Highway (14U) from 500 feet north of Newhall Avenue to Whispering Leaves Drive. The remaining part of Sierra Highway through the City of Santa Clarita is maintained by the City and not part of the 14U designation.

    • Lorie Lawson Lorie Lawson says:

      14U is the original road from the Antelope Valley (now Sierra Hwy) prior to the freeway being built. This Bill gives the section of Sierra Hwy between the intersection of Newhall and the intersection of Friendly Valley to the City of Santa Clarita. The State will no longer be responsible for maintenance, etc.
